Therefore, we believe that improving English teaching is one of our main goals in this country."
Litzenberger said Azerbaijan State Pedagogical University is one of the most worthy partners to achieve this goal: "We are confident that our English specialists will lend assistance in this process. Conducting of master training is also an essential factor within the program. It is fascinating to see that the most prestigious universities in our countries combine their efforts in this way.
